I highly recommend Miss Amy and this program! Our journey started the summer before my niece entered 3rd grade. She had been struggling to decode even three letter words and that summer I came to understand she had a form of dyslexia. The first two years she really struggled with reading but Miss Amy was so patient with her and always thought of new ways or resources to help us along. Even the days she was frustrated and overwhelmed with reading, Miss Amy always knew what to say to help calm her down and keep moving her ahead. I am proud to say that this spring when A. graduated 5th grade she was not only reading at grade level but she scored well above average in reading and language on the state exam and slightly above average in language mechanics. That never could have been possible without Miss Amy and this amazing OG program. A. now feels confident in reading and has the tools to be successful. (Thank you Miss Amy for the past three years. We will miss your tutelage but A. is ready to soar thank to you. We are forever grateful we found you)


The tutoring my son received from Ms. Amy was a tremendous help in developing his reading skills. She has made him a more proficient and self sufficient reader and he loves his time with her!
